Intense Cycles are hotting up their 2016 lineup with the arrival of the all new Spider 275 carbon. The new Spider 275c is the ultimate in U.K trail bike technology, with 130mm travel and a 67 degree head angle the Spider can handle anything you can throw at it.
After a recent trip to Bike Park Wales shop manager and general handy rider Will had the chance to take the Spider 275c out on the trails. Here is what he had to say:
“The Spider 275c is a whole new level of trail bike. Usually riding a 130mm travel bike on an uplift you feel pretty under biked but the Spider felt bottomless in it’s travel and tracks the trail like a 160mm bike, short aggressive sprints are attacked with ease and technical rock gardens are chewed up by the new I-Box suspension platform. The boost back end adds stiffness and rigidity to the bike and in turn makes it feel extremely planted. All in all I thought the bike was great and can’t wait to ride it again”.
